PGY1 Pharmacy- Ambulatory Care Track
The PGY1 pharmacy residency program builds on the Pharm.D. education to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency, Ambulatory Care Track, is a 12-month program designed to develop residents into strong and capable pharmacy practitioners with additional experience in the ambulatory care setting. Through exposure to general and specialty ambulatory care experiences, as well as experiences in acute care medicine and administration, the resident will gain broad exposure to areas of patient care and pharmacy which have impacts on practice in the ambulatory care setting. The program is designed based on the belief that the best ambulatory care providers are those who clearly understand what patients experience throughout the continuum of care, through clinic, acute care, and transitional care environments.
The residency program focuses on the development of skills necessary to practice at a high level in an ambulatory care medicine environment. In addition, the resident will gain exposure to research and teaching experiences to help complement the development of a well-rounded practitioner.
Residents in the PGY1 Ambulatory Care Residency Program are expected to participate in and complete all requirements of the traditional PGY1 residency program, and are permitted to participate in any and all opportunities afforded to the traditional PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residents. Please refer to the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Page for information pertaining to these opportunities.
